Since 2022, the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), in particular North Kivu, has been gripped by a devastating conflict that has intensified and become increasingly complex over time, with the potential to reach unprecedented levels in the province.

The period from 28 January to 12 February 2024 was particularly marked by an expansion of hostilities in the territories of Masisi, Rutshuru and Nyiragongo. The most affected areas identified are located in Masisi (the Bashali and Bahunde chefferies), the Bukombo groupement in Rutshuru and the Buhumba and Kibumba groupement in Nyiragongo.

Since the beginning of the crisis, IOM, through its Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), has continued conducting a series of rapid assessments, including emergency monitoring (EET/ERM), crisis analysis and registration with the aim of responding to immediate information needs in order to understand displacement dynamics.

This report presents the results of assessments carried out in the various displacement and return areas between 28 January and 12 February 2024.
